A Poem, The Glass World

This was a fun poem to put together. I thought of it this morning. This reminds me of something, something perhaps that some of us have in our home?
We know it for a particular name, but the contents within may call it their glass world.

I walked to the ends of my world
Shadows beyond my view creeping
What is this life? I ask as my mind swirled
My world shakes; with rage, I am weeping
My existence fragmentary but has meaning
Search for answers through this snow-filled land
Life beyond this shell, I can’t help dreaming
I want to hold the world in the palm of my hand
I traveled to the edge for the last time
My world changed forevermore
Bitter victory tastes of chyme
Mind unfurled, I drop to the floor
You see, I live in a glass-encased world preferably shaken, not stirred
I will continue through this façade of existence unseen and unheard

Let me know what you think!
Thanks for reading!

      1. Hi! Lol. I know it has been a hot minute since I have been able to spend some time on here. I have had so many other writing assignments that I have been slacking on my own personal writing escape. Lol.

        But I mean it! I always look forward to reading your next post. It is the best, isn’t it? When idea just forms and words breeze right out of our heads in such a rush. I hope I will have so more time this week to be on here and what not. πŸ™‚
